Letter: Local store made it a priority to be helpful and kind

To the editor:

I want to thank Lou, the manager of Barrington Hardware, for helping to keep a small-town, look-out-for-one-another community spirit in Barrington.  

When I went into the store looking for something to help out my father, Lou made it a priority to be helpful and kind to, shall we say, a long-time Barrington resident. 

Thanks Lou! I hope the spirit you showed recently continues on when you and I are the same age as my father.

Appreciatively,

Erich Stephens

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
